Off the beaten path of downtown Juneau where thousands of cruise ship tourists disemark, is a treasure I found online. Pearson's Pond is in a residential neighborhood very close to the Mendelhall Glacier and about 15 minutes from town.
The rooms are spacious and clean and charming with kitchenettes and porches and views of a small picturesque pond. The gardens are lovely and painstakingly tended to. There is a hot tub we enjoyed after a long hike to the glacier. There is also a row boat my kids loved and bikes and fishing equipment at your disposal. There were many little touches that did not go unnoticed, like homemade cookies and a pantry and fridge filled with all the basics. After spending a week on a boat touring southeast Alaska, this was the perfect spot to regroup, do laundry (free of charge) and make ourselves literally right at home.
There was one other honeymooning couple while we were there. While it is not typically a family destination, the owners could not have been more accomodating and welcoming.
